The Queen has always had a close bond with her grandson Prince Harry and shared a series of touching photos to mark the Duke's 37th birthday in September 2021.

Her Majesty even referred to Harry by name in one of her most personal statements yet, following the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision to step back as senior royals in March 2020.

Harry appears to share the same cheeky sense of humour as his 95-year-old grandmother and the pair have been known to share a giggle or two in public.

Harry also convinced his grandmother to take part in a hilarious video exchange between the British royals and then US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, to promote the Invictus Games in 2016.
